Gender, Humanities and Ethnic Studies Center
In fall 2009 the Gender, Humanities and Ethnic Studies Center (GHES Center) was established to create a common area for students interested or involved in these programs.
Staffed by students Monday through Friday, the GHES Center is located on the first floor of the Wendell Phillips Center (WPC) building. It is open to all who wish to drop by for conversation and coffee, to learn more about the programs it supports, or to simply relax.
The Gender Studies Program holds its faculty research presentations in the center, and students are welcome to use it for student club meetings.
Pacific Feminists Club
Pacific Feminists is a group that is dedicated to discussing issues and raising questions about women's place in society—both in America and elsewhere around the globe.
Pacific Feminists is committed to the belief that women should be treated equally in fields of work, sexual identity and the fulfillment of their personal goals. They seek to subvert the idea that women should be treated any differently than men, or that gender should be used as a means for different treatment in general.
The club participates in many events and actions to raise awareness and get their messages out. Pacific Feminist meetings are a place of learning, self-love and empowerment, and the group welcomes with open arms both women and men who are interested in exploring such topics or participating in Pacific Feminist events.

The Women's Resource Center at Pacific is located inside the Multicultural Center on the ground level of the McCaffrey Center. The purpose of the center is to promote awareness of women's and gender issues and celebrate and cultivate women's leadership on campus and beyond. The Women's Center is used for meetings and events, and serves as a resource for gender equality and campus violence prevention.
